Satisfy Your Taco Cravings, Baja Style!
Looking for a delicious, locals favorite, and “why not?” cheap meal in Cabo San Lucas? If so, Gardenias is the place for you!
Gardenias is a neighborhood restaurant located in the heart of Cabo San Lucas. Known for their delicious seafood and Mexican cuisine, their claim to fame is the amazing shrimp and fish tacos. The variety of salsas and toppings combined with corn or flour tortillas and freshly caught fish and shrimp makes it a must.
Open since 1980, their first establishment was positioned on the outskirts of town. Placed next to the police station, they made their way selling tacos from a cart, evolving into a casual restaurant five minutes away from El Medano beach. Years passed by and the business kept growing; serving many of the local community but quickly discovered by tourists from all over the world.
The restaurant does not stop at tacos. They serve a variety of seafood in cocktails, steaming molcajetes, garden fresh seafood salads as well as a traditional and delicious tortilla soup. What makes Gardenias unique is the home-style food they serve, staying true to the same family recipes year after year. Opening early in the day, hungry diners have the chance to grab a bite at lunchtime, not having to waiting for a taco stand that opens only in the evening.
Gardenia’s reputation has grown to the extent where everyone who visits or lives in Cabo knows of their standards of quality and awesome taste. The thriving business is also a sponsor of the famous Bisbee’s Black and Blue fishing tournament, extending their reach to partner up with ocean related activities.
Treat yourself and eat like a local, wandering the streets in the heart of Cabo San Lucas to eventually stumble across this hidden gem. More of a tech-person? You can easily find them in Google Maps as “Gardenias Tacos”.
